Amanda's Squatty Sidekick Felted
I went to do laundry last night and discovered that our front loading washing machine had decided it didn't want to lock the door and spin out on high anymore. Looking on the bright side, I decided it was the perfect time to get Amanda's Squatty Sidekick felted since I could now open the door whenever I wanted and it would never spin a silly crease in the side.
Here's the results. It is about 11 1/2 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches high and then 4 1/2 inches deep. I am overall pleased with it, I will definitely make another one and plan out the decreases a little better if I double the depth of the bottom again. The one side seems to have had more decreases than the other and pulls in toward the handle more severely.
I was a little concerned about the short handle going around my arm so I have "hung" it to dry. I'm sure it will take days and days with this humid and hot MN weather!
